Alexandra Ayoob – Something’s Missing: Soulfully Sensual Alt Pop

Alexandra Ayoob

Rising Indie Pop act Alexandra Ayoob has unleashed an alluring earworm onto the airwaves with her darkly atmospheric debut hit “Something’s Missing”.

If you could imagine what a Hozier, Bjork and Billie Eilish mash-up would sound like, you’ll have a good idea of the kind of aural alchemy which Something’s Missing will throw your way.

Similarities aside, the almost overwhelmingly resounding distinction found in Something’s Missing. Through the style, performance and passion, Alexandra Ayoob set herself from any other artist around in 2020. She’s definitely one for the radar, no other artist parallels her ability to ooze sensuality and soul simultaneously.

Something’s Missing is due for release on October 3rd. You can pre-save or pre-purchase the track via this link.

Keep up to date with news of the release via Instagram.

Aimee Saturne has made a salaciously daring Pop debut with “Don’t Tell My Boyfriend”

Don’t Tell My Boyfriend” is the salaciously daring debut Dark Pop single from LA artist Aimee Saturne. If it was any more debauched Christian fundamentalists would be on a mission to cancel her.

Her sultry vocal timbre perfectly matches the lyrics which go further than pretty much any other Pop single I’ve ever heard. There may be plenty of tracks about romantic indiscretion on the airwaves, but Aimee Saturne’s is definitely the hottest. Even the atmospherically tantalizing stylistic beats drip with sex appeal.

To say that she’s earned a spot on our radar feels like an understatement. We’re practically infatuated.

‘Roadblock’ from Brighton band Compliments is a debut dripped in gold

4-piece Brighton band Compliments rock in with their brand new single called ‘Roadblock‘.

Formed in 2020 and brought together by the band Gods as a way of freshening up the music scene. This is all about escapism and that feeling encapsulated 2020 in a nutshell. The feeling of being trapped all inside and looking outside by the window.

Roadblock‘ is a rocking indie-rock soundtrack that needs to be in a Netflix series. There is bite here, an edge to this young UK band. For a new team, they are in-sync like a glove that fits your hand, they are on the right side of time here. They might be the wrong side of the road and clock in this one lyric-wise but their emergence is met with real excitement.

Brighton band Compliments get better and better as the songs gears into the meaty part of the bone. There is lots to feed off here as they bands sound takes over. This is a terrific track that makes me listen again and again. Yes, this song is timeless and deserves lots of love. For a debut release, this is a great day to be alive. Turn this up and forget your worries.

London-based RnB artist Eleazar has made a soulfully empowering debut with “Karma”

If there is anything sweeter than karmic justice, it’s breaking RnB artist Eleazar’s 2020 debut single “Karma”.

The London-based artist ensured that there was a modernistic melodic feel to the light, warm and dexterous soundscape while making sure that she paid ode to the roots of Soul. The deeply narrative lyrics serve up plenty of relatable sentiments for anyone who has ever experienced someone rolling into your life as a hot mess, treated you like dirt and expected you to fix them. The verses run without a hint of negative emotion, just pure faith in Karma and empowered conviction. It’s a soulful invitation to let go of the anger and trust the process of karmic justice.

Erik Eimiller has released their seductively stylish Indie Synth Pop debut single “Cross the Ocean”

After amassing plenty of acclaim for his percussion skills, New York artist Erik Eimiller has made their solo debut with the seductively stylish Alt Pop single Cross the Ocean.

Along with the infectiously melodic synth-carved hooks, you’ll hear the rhythmic grit of the Indie instrumentals which add even more energy to the entrancing soundscape. Cross the Ocean may share a reminiscence or two with 80s Synth Pop. Yet, perceptibly, Erik Eimiller has made the sound his own through the expressively magnetic vocals and the discernibly solid structure of the mix which won’t fail to arrest your rhythmic pulses.

If you’re looking for an aural pick me up which drips organic feel-good vibes, look no further.

Lilo is due to make her debut with her resoundingly powerful Baroque Dance Pop single Turned to Glass

Lilo

Up and coming Pop artist Lilo is set to make a resounding debut with her first officially released single “Turned to Glass”.

The progressive hit kicks off with a moody prelude which will ensnare any fans of Lorde. Yet, the soundscape quickly picks up momentum and bursts into an effervescent offering of high-octane Baroque Dance Pop. If that wasn’t enough, there are also the feel-good Disco Pop vibes which will leave you feeling higher than the notes Lilo can easily stretch to vocally.

The energy will leave you psyched while the ingenuity will leave you floored. Lilo’s powerful vocal dynamics are one thing. Her unapologetically experimental style puts her leagues apart from any other Pop artist I’ve heard this year. She’s definitely one to watch.

Turned to Glass will be available to stream via all major platforms from August 7th. For more info, head over to Lilo’s official website.

Scotty Otten urges peace with each other on new single ”Earthstrong”

An artist who has just been transported from the early 80’s into our ears at precisely the right time. Most importantly, he has the right message of peace and unity.

Earthstrong” is taken off the debut album from Seattle native Scotty Otten. A singer with flair and imagination.

Scotty Otten is new on the scene and sparkles brightly with this 80’s influenced pop song for the ages. He saunters in with a scream to announce his arrival and from there, you will be dancing around your room. The sound is pure and with a deep sense of meaning. Everything around you falls away for just a few minutes while listening to ”Earthstrong”. This is a song about unity and just plain ol’ hope. Scotty also has a sense of humor with the strong message which is usually the best way to go about it. This song took me back down memory lane and if this is a taste of what’s to come- the rest of ”Puzzle Pieces” will be a marvel to listen to.

Stream this 80’s inspired artist with a big future on his new SoundCloud channel and get those dancing shoes ready for action.

Sam Mudd has released their debut Polyphonic EDM Pop Earworm “Where Are You?”

Up and coming artist Sam Mudd has made their lockdown debut with the polyphonically electric Pop hit “Where Are You (All Up)” and stamped down their authentically expressive style.

The Lo-Fi track kicks off with a melodic guitar intro before sliding into an energetic EDM Pop beat layered with Sam Mudd’s effect-laden vocals which find perfect synergy with the entrancing rhythms.

As much as we appreciated the artist’s quintessentially endearing style, the reverb and use of autotune were slightly excessive. But that’s not to say there isn’t plenty of potential to be found in Where Are You. Any artist willing to be so bold with their debut track is more than worth having on your radar.
